Derrick Rose Ties Record

Posted on: April 23, 2009



Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls put on an amazing performance against the Boston Celtics in the first round of the 2009 NBA playoffs. Rose made an outrageous first game performance with 36 points and 11 assists as a rookie. This tied Kareem Abdul Jabbar for the record of points made during a player’s first career playoff game. It seems to show that Derrick Rose doesn’t need previous experience in the playoffs to perform, as he showed the whole country on Saturday against the defending NBA champions the Boston Celtics. Many people’s hopes are high, and the city of Chicago is hoping that Rose is their next Micheal Jordan for the next decade.  Rose came out of his first year of college with the Memphis Tigers and went straight to the top of the NBA draft. He hasn’t let anyone down yet so far, but I believe that he still has much more to show the fans. On Wednesday night the Bulls play the Celtics again, which marks the anniversary of the 1986 playoff game when Micheal Jordan scored 63 against Boston in the playoffs. If Saturday’s game is a glimpse of whats to come with Rose, then we can expect big things from him in the second game of the playoffs on Wednesday night.
